Dent, L. (2015). Progress in Emergency Preparedness for Dialysis Care 10 Years After Hurricane Katrina. American Journal of Kidney Diseases. 66(5): 742-744.
The authors review the improvements in preparedness for dialysis care between 2005 and 2015, and recommend additional efforts to enhance preparedness. Recommendations include increased patient education around emergency diet needs; encouraging patients to carry dialysis plan information and medication lists at all times; and state-level legislation requiring dialysis facilities to have back-up generators.
